The two new additions to the family have finally made it, they are both soooo cute. Its hard for me to fathom that I too will have another little squirmy worm in my arms in a couple of months, apart from the growing tummy I dont think about being pregnant all the much.
I only have a picture of the first born Kai (k-i, meaning ocean) who is part Japanese part aussie. He is being cuddled by his grandmother who travelled from Japan to spend time with her new grandson.
He is a little sweetie, not causing too much trouble for his new mummy. Months before his birth I was madly trying to finish his prezzie and because he was supposed to be the second to be born I put that project aside to finish the gift for the other baby, Michael. Kai had other plans and came two weeks early, thus a mad rush to finish his quilt before going to visit the family in the hospital.
Here is the quilt that I made. I thought that it turned out okay, love the colours and pattern.
I saw a similar design in a magazine and altered it too fit the size that I wanted. The only dilemma I had with making it is that I did not know which colour thread to use when quilting it together. I ended up using white which was the best colour for the front of the quilt, not so much for the back. I also used orange thread around the stars (through my mums insistence).
As for the next baby, Michael, I made something a little different because I was not going to make another quilt. I made some burp cloths using flannel on the back and cotton on top (blue) and I also made a blanket using a knit fabric (orange) on the back and cotton on top. I joined the two together by puting some knots through both sides.
